A Sensational Rooftop Pool - Miami




The South Beach Miami penthouse pool and spa is a custom designed stainless steel project with specialty glass tile created to continue the decadent vibe of a rooftop scene to take your breath away. The creative design includes unique pool features such as the submerged stools, the accessible table-functioning edge, and its step-level details that match the surrounding top deck environment.
The stools inside the pool give you access to the table designed to overhang the pool edge. The weight of a large top floor pool was overcome by the customized stainless steel material.
The overall pool design is to elevate you to the stunning view with the hot tub above the pool, yet keep the whole structure as a low-lying position on the deck. The stainless steel construction was ideally suited for the ocean side, high salt area. A negative edge creates a reflective vanishing edge which effectively blurs the line between the pool and the ocean beyond.
The job included incredible logistics involved in transporting and placing the vessel by helicopter on the 47th floor and careful assembly and welding with final tiling in the field. The sections were pre-fabricated by Bradford Products, then shipped, lifted and placed together for quality installation control.





Here’s what the resident had to say:
“I am thrilled to say that my experience with Bradford products on this project has far exceeded my expectations­–from the initial sales contact…to the pain staking engineering of every last detail to the delicate tile selection. Bradford was able to quickly adapt to many challenges during the project and this important quality sets Bradford far apart as a leader in their industry. Not too mention that the Bradford product is second to none. I can't tell you how many vendors and visitors have commented on the exceptional quality of the pool (and everyone says that the tile job is exceptional).”
This was such a unique residential pool design for us to be part of from concept to installation and we were thrilled by the resident’s enthusiasm with the final product.

A Bradford Pool featured in New York Design Hunting Magazine



Another Bradford pool has been nestled in high above the infamous New York City skyline. Our stainless steel pools and spas are making more and more of these rooftop fantasies a reality with the ability to custom fabricate pools and spas for any space.

The Todd Harris Company approached Bradford looking for something special to suit this “ultimate rooftop” in the New York Metropolitan Area. After seeing the design concept, the Bradford team went to work to develop the concept and fabricate a custom lap pool designed to meet the specific and unique requirements of the client.
